    I know the man was trying to save his soldiers lives, OK, there is humanity in that.

    But war has it's own demands, you can kill a lot more people being humane.

    War demands one thing, success.

    Success saves lives in war, not humanity.

    Did you get his autograph? Picture? I think it's cool. What's the deal- was he giving a speech or you see him at Dunkin Donuts?

    If you are going into war, there is nor real point in just saying cover our ass, if you are going there, you have to thrist for victory.

    It is victory that will keep you alive.

    I am serious here, the General Casey go home at night strategy in Iraq was kind, he was trying to save his boys, but it prolonged the war and allowed the bastards to take control of the night.

    Do not go into war unless you can be a badder bastard than your enemy.

    You can be kind, when you control the battlefield.
